The cottage

Located close to the centre of Templecombe in Somerset, Hill House Cottage is a charming, self-contained wing of a Grade II listed early 18th century house.

It has been renovated and refurbished by the owners to a high standard and combines old world charm with modern convenience.

The property has exposed stonework, flagstone floors, and a lovely woodburning stove in the sitting room, whilst the fitted kitchen and bathroom have a superb contemporary look, creating very special holiday accommodation.

The cottage is within walking distance of a local convenience shop and fish and chip shop, whilst nearby attractions include Wincanton, Glastonbury, Wookey Hole, Wells and Cheddar Gorge.

To the south and east lie historic Wiltshire, Stonehenge and Salisbury as well as the picturesque Dorset countryside and stunning Jurassic Coast, all easily accessible.

This is an excellent cottage, and an ideal touring base.
